President Donald Trump came up with yet another pathetic argument in an effort to undermine or delay his impeachment, suggesting that hearings should not be held while he is not in Washington DC.
Much to Trump’s dismay, the impeachment hearings have been going terribly for him as damning evidence and public testimony pile up against him.
Transcripts of Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Zelensky clearly show that he expected a favor from Ukraine in exchange for the military aid the country needs to fight Russian aggression. That favor Trump demanded is for Ukraine to open an investigation to dig up dirt on former Vice-President Joe Biden that Trump could use during the 2020 Election, a scheme that acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and his own lawyer Rudy Giuliani have confirmed.
Furthermore, Ambassadors Gordon Sondland and Marie Yovanovich have testified that Trump engaged in a quid-pro-quo in testimony so damaging to Trump that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wants to prevent it from being used in the Senate trial by labeling it as “hearsay.”
Trump and his Republican allies have been desperately trying to disrupt or undermine the hearings, from unnecessary shouting to outright lies.
So far, their efforts have failed and a majority of Americans now support impeachment. But Trump is now trying a new tactic.
During yet another Twitter tantrum, Trump whined about impeachment hearings being scheduled to take place while he is out of town in London at a NATO conference.
I will be representing our Country in London at NATO, while the Democrats are holding the most ridiculous Impeachment hearings in history. Read the Transcripts, NOTHING was done or said wrong! The Radical Left is undercutting our Country. Hearings scheduled on same dates as NATO!

Trump appears to be saying that impeachment hearings should not take place while the president is not in Washington DC. Of course, if that were the case, Trump would make sure he stays out of Washington DC for the rest of his term because in the end he is a frightened little boy who knows he did something wrong but does not want to be held accountable for his crimes.
Unfortunately for Trump, he may not want to do his job, but Congress has no problem continuing to do theirs whether the president is in town or not.
